Q.Cucumber- no females
I am living n Cyprus and growing cucumbers in a large pot, just as I did in UK, but so far, after male flowers for a month, still no sign of a female. Is there a reason for this, or am i just unlucky this time?

You may just be unlucky. It's nature's way for the male flowers to bloom first. That is supposed to get the bee activity going. Then about 10 days later, the female flowers start to bloom. By then there should be plenty of bees coming and going. You may have to be patient a while longer.
